Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette

Easy Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette recipe from Oakley's Southern Delights

While it may never have crossed your mind before, jams, jellies and marmalades are an excellent addition to many recipes, as they pack a lot of concentrated flavor that can enhance most any dish.

This simple recipe for a Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette is an excellent example of that, adding both sweetness and spice to most any salad. Once made, it will keep in refrigeration for up to two weeks, though we doubt you'll have it sitting around very long!



2 Tbsp Oakley's Southern Delights Pepper Jelly

2 tsp Dijon Mustard

2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar

4 Tbsp Walnut Oil*

pinch of salt and freshly-ground pepper


Start by adding the Pepper Jelly to a small bowl and whisking in the mustard. Add the vinegar and whisk to combine. Drizzle in the oil while whisking, taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed. 

*Note: We suggest using walnut oil or other mild-flavored salad oils rather than olive oil for this recipe.


Pepper Jelly Barbecue Sauce

This simple recipe has got to be the fastest way to whip up a batch of homemade barbecue sauce we've ever seen. Not to mention, the little extra spice and tang from our Pepper Jelly makes it unlike any other!

We love it as a sauce for meatball appetizers, on barbecue chicken and even on grilled hamburgers! Once made, it will keep in the refrigerator for at least two weeks.
